Suprasorb® X + PHMB exhibits broad antimicrobial efficacy*. In vitro studies have demonstrated the very rapid and almost complete release of polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) from the dressing after 24 hours. Depending on the condition of the wound, the products either release moisture or absorb excess exudate, creating a moist wound environment. Change of dressing is atraumatic. The material allows easy adaptation of the dressing to any shape or depth of wound. The products are therefore particularly suited for difficult-to-treat parts of the body. The wound dressing is specifically designed not to adhere to the wound or secondary dressing. Patients find the moist environment and cooling effect pleasant and soothing.

 *See instruction for use for in-vitro spectrum

  1. Excess exudate draining out of the wound is absorbed by the dressing
  2. Moisture from the dressing is released to the lightly exuding wound
  3. The released polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) kills the micro-organisms
  1. Cleanse the wound according to the usual standard and then carefully dab the area around the wound dry with sterile wound dressings.
  2. Apply Suprasorb X + PHMB and mould to the wound. If using packing rope, fold several times and place loosely in the wound.
  3. Depending on the amount of exudate, secure with an appropriate secondary dressing.
